Errors in this video:

At about the 1:06 mark, the teacher says there's not any value we can put in for y where our left side and our right side will equal 0; he should have said there's not any value for y where our left side and our right side equal each other.

Lesson Description:

Solving a linear equation when there is no solution

I show how to solve math problems online during live instruction in class. This is my way of providing free tutoring for the students in my class and for students anywhere in the world. Every video is a short clip that shows exactly how to solve math problems step by step. The problems are done in real time and in front of a regular classroom. These videos are intended to help you learn how to solve math problems, review how to solve a math problems, study for a test, or finish your homework. I post all of my videos on YouTube, but if you are looking for other ways to interact with me and my videos you can follow me on the following pages through My Blog, Twitter, or Facebook.
